Otherwise known as the poor man’s lobster, frog-fish, or sea-devils, monkfish offer the rich flavors and tender texture that can turn any land dweller or picky eater into a seafood lover. Although they may be fearsome and startling in appearance, some of nature’s most surprising mysteries can make the most delicious treats. Monkfish are caught from North Carolina to Maine using trawl or gillnet gear in northern versus southern waters. Our Atlantic monkfish offers a delightfully firm texture that makes this fish so versatile to prepare and enjoy.
Their mild taste and texture is reminiscent of lobster, but these delectably bizarre fish have a flavor of their own. Whether baked, broiled, fried, grilled, poached, or sautéed, our Atlantic monkfish will spice up any weeknight meal fatigue. A monkfish is primarily made up of tail meat, and each order we deliver offers up to three pounds of succulent meat you can incorporate into pastas, rice, stew, sandwiches, and other popular recipes.
